About the maker
Emily Kidson is an award-winning contemporary jeweller whose layered, intuitively designed pieces marry bold materials with traditional craftsmanship.
Emily makes every piece of jewellery by hand in her London studio, and each piece is the culmination of an immersive creative process. Nature, art and architecture are particular influences, and her eye for detail informs the minimal, subtly layered aesthetic of her work. Emily combines modern materials with traditional jewellery and silversmithing techniques. handmade silver details, inlay, wood and resin feature in her work alongside the boldly coloured laminate work she hasd become known for. Above all, Emily sees jewellery as an artistic expression of the personality of the maker and the wearer. It makes a statement, speaks of individuality, and is something to be treasured and understood.
